Eric Hatsberg, or Super Erico, a pro-wrestler auctioned off part of his face for the Romney Ryan campaign earning $15,000 for a 5 by 2 inch space. This tattoo is now a permanent reminder of this years election and the political defeat of Mitt Romney in his run for election. Hit the jump for more.
Some Republicans would like to forget Mitt Romney’s losing presidential campaign.
Pro-wrestler Eric Hartsburg, who tattooed the Romney campaign logo onto the side of his face, doesn’t have that option.
“Totally disappointed, man,” Hartsburg told Politico when asked about Romney’s loss. “I’m the guy who has egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it’s a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It’s there for life.”
Hartsburg used the online auction house eBay to sell a 5-by-2-inch space on the side of his face for $15,000 to an anonymous Romney fan.
The 30-year-old Indiana resident told Politico he has taken a fair share of flak since Romney’s loss to President Obama last week.
“I’ve gotten a lot of negative stuff, a lot of ‘F U’s,’” Hartsburg said. “It’s all kinds of ribbage, man. … ‘Your guy lost!’ ‘What are you going to do now?’”
He said he has learned some lessons from the experience, mainly that “the Republican Party needs quite a bit of reform,” mostly in winning over young voters.
